  • Iran drafts bill to confront US sanctions

Iran has claimed its missiles are needed for self-defense, arguing its missiles and rockets are not meant to carry nuclear warheads and that the 2015 nuclear accord assures that Tehran is not developing such weapons. "Rhetoric and actions from USA show bad faith", Zarif added.

The top Iranian diplomat emphasized that Iran has never been and would not be developing nuclear weapons, saying, "So, by definition can not develop anything created to be capable of delivering them".

Simorgh satellite carrier is able to put satellites weighing as much as 250 kilograms at an orbit about 500 kilometers above the Earth's surface.

Iran successfully tested a rocket that can deliver satellites into orbit, state television reported on Thursday, an action the United States said breaches a U.N. Security Council resolution because of its potential use in ballistic missile development.

Kansas City "Trades" New American Dom Dwyer To Orlando
At the very least, the club will acquire $400,000 in general allocation money and $500,000 in targeted allocation in the trade . Orlando City can play Larin and Dwyer together, and look to rebuild Larin's market value ahead of a potential winter transfer.

The US government says the technology used in the launch is inherently created to be able to carry a nuclear payload, in violation of UN Security Council resolutions. The resolution states Iran is merely "called upon" not to conduct such rocket and missile tests.

Under the agreement, Iran undertook to put limitations on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related bans imposed against Tehran.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Thursday that the administration considered the launch-successful or not-to be a violation of UN Security Council resolution 2231, which implemented the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. He also denied that Iran is working toward an ICBM.

The 2015 accord imposed restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

North Korea's ceremonial leader Kim Yong-nam will soon visit Iran to attend the inauguration ceremony for Iran's president slated for early next month, the North's state media said Friday.

Though Iran boasted that the launch was successful, US intelligence agencies "quickly determined that assessment was more propaganda than fact", according to Fox.

"Instead of seeking pretexts and leveling unfounded accusations against Iran, the U.S. statesmen had better stop repeating measures which are against global regulations", Qassemi said.
